Mascot of British pig industry dies
Winnie, the British pig who took part in industry
protests outside Parliament during a turbulent decade has died in her sleep. She
was nine yeas old.
During her three-month vigil in response to unilateral legislation by the
government, dual standards by supermarkets and, latterly, a global increase in
feed prices, Winnie was cared for by campaigning pig farmers and became a
popular tourist attraction.
In March this year, she came out of retirement to spend a day opposite
Downing Street, where she met politicians and celebrities.
